I got destroyed at a web-surfing competition
I knew the web surfing contest was going to be hard as soon as Dragan Espenschied, a digital conservator and artist, explained the premise. Race across the internet from point A to B using only a one-button mouse: no keyboard, no search, no URL bar, no back button. It sounded almost impossible, even for someone who spends all day online, and that was before I found out my competitors had been training.

"I practiced a bit," said John Urquhart, one of three BuzzFeed employees present, with a studied nonchalance that said, we wrote a playbook, we have code words. "My keyboard is missing so many buttons, I’ve been training for years," said one competitor. "Click to kill," joked another.

I got destroyed at a web-surfing competition

I knew the web surfing contest was going to be hard as soon as Dragan Espenschied, a digital conservator and artist, explained the premise. “I practiced a bit,” said John Urquhart, one of three BuzzFeed employees present, with a studied nonchalance that said, we wrote a playbook, we have code words. Though there was someone from the Coast Guard there, and a metal fabricator, and a few others who heard about the contest on Twitter and thought it sounded fun, the crowd skewed toward people who spend a lot of time on the internet professionally, either in media or art, thinking about the way the web works. Many knew each other from Twitter.
